Scientists have discovered a “monster black hole” so massive that, in theory, it shouldn't
It's a stellar black hole—the type that forms after stars die, collapse, and explode. Researchers
had previously believed that the size limit was no more than 20 times the mass of our sun because
as these stars die, they lose most of their mass through explosions that expel matter and gas swept
away by stellar winds.
This theory has now been toppled by LB1, the newlydiscovered black hole. Located about
15，000 light years away, it has a mass 70 times greater than our sun, according to a press release
from the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The findings were published by Chinese researchers in the journal Nature on Wednesday.
“ Black holes of such mass should not even exist in our galaxy, according to most of the
current models of stellar evolution，” said Liu Jifeng, head of the team that made the discovery.
“LB1 is twice as massive as what we thought possible. Now theorists will have to take up the
challenge of explaining its formation.”
Scientists are now scratching their heads at how LB1 got so huge.
The Chinese team has proposed a number of theories. LB1's sheer size suggests that it “was 6
not formed from the collapse of only one star” ， the study said—instead, it could potentially be
two smaller black holes orbiting each other.
Another possibility is that it formed from a “fallback supernova”. This is when a
supernova—the last stage of an exploding star—ejects material during the explosion, which then
falls back into the supernova, creating a black hole.
This fallback formation is theoretically possible, but scientists have never been able to prove
or observe it. If this is how LB1 formed, then we may have “direct evidence for this process”
for the first time, the study said.
There are several types of black holes, and stellar black holes like LB1 are on the smaller
side, according to NASA. Supermassive black holes are much bigger—they can be billions of times
the mass of our sun.
Scientists believe supermassive black holes may be connected to the formation of galaxies, as
they often exist at the center of the massive star systems—but it is still not clear exactly how, or
which form first.
( )58. Why does the writer write the article?
A. To report the great achievement Chinese scientists have made in black hole theory.
B. To inform the readers of the basic knowledge about the black hole.
C. To share with the readers the new development of the black hole discovery.
D. To demonstrate the significance of discovering new black holes for science.
( )59. Which of the following about LB1 is true to the passage?
A. It is the biggest black hole ever discovered.
B. It lost only a small part of its mass through explosion.
C. It couldn't have been formed from the collapse of one star.
D. Its discovery may lead to some breakthrough in the “fallback formation theory”．
( )60. Which of the following is right according to the passage?
A. If the sun in our galaxy dies some of its mass will be taken away by stellar winds.
B. A massive supernova will be formed and then exploded if the sun in our galaxy dies.
C. “The Milky Way” was formed after a supermassive black hole collapsed and exploded.
D. If “the Milky Way” dies, a supermassive black hole will be formed after its death.
Buck did not know that there was trouble ahead. Trouble for every dog with strong muscles
and warm long hair, from Seattle to southern California. Some men had found a yellow metal in the
Arctic darkness, and thousands of other men were rushing there. These men wanted dogs that were
heavy, with strong muscles for working hard and furry coats to protect them from the cold.
Buck lived at a big house in a sunny valley in California which was owned by Judge Miller.
He was neither a house dog nor a kennel(狗窝) dog. The whole of Judge Miller's land was his.
Buck was king—king over all the crawling, flying things of Judge Miller's lands, humans included.
His father, Elmo, had been the Judge's inseparable companion. And when he died, Buck took
his father's place. He was not so large—he weighed only sixty kilograms—for his mother, Shep,
had been a Scottish sheepdog. He had had a good life and he was proud of himself, for he had not
become a house dog. Hunting and other outdoor activities had hardened his muscles, and
swimming had made him healthy.
This was Buck in the autumn of 1897, when the discovery of gold in the Klondike brought
men from everywhere to the frozen north. But Buck did not read the newspapers. And he did not 7
know that Manuel, one of the gardener's helpers, was not a good man. Manuel gambled(赌博) and
wasted the little money he had. No one saw him and Buck go off on what Buck thought was a walk.
No one saw them arrive at the railway station, where Manuel sold Buck to a man who was waiting
After two days he was carried off the train in Seattle into a small, highwalled yard. There a
fat man in a red sweater broke open the cage with a small axe(斧头), while holding a club(棍棒) in
the other hand. When there was a big enough opening, Buck jumped out like a redeyed devil,
straight at the fat man. But in midair, just as his teeth were going to close on the man, he received
a shock that he had never felt before. It turned him over and onto the ground. He had never been
struck by a club in his life, and he did not understand. He was smashed down a dozen times.
Buck saw that he stood no chance against the man with the club. He had learned the lesson,
and for the rest of his life he never forgot it. It was his introduction into the world of primitive law.
In the end a small man called Perrault paid three hundred dollars for him, and he was led away
with Curly, a goodnatured Newfoundland dog.
( )61. What kind of dogs did the goldseekers want?
A. Heavy house dogs with yellow hair. B. Strong longhaired dogs.
C. Diligent dogs with yellow hair. D. Muscular kennel dogs.
( )62. Buck was proud of himself for the following reasons, EXCEPT that ________．
A. he was king over all living things of Judge Miller's lands
B. he became the Judge's inseparable companion after his father's death
C. he had a good life with many outdoor activities to get strong and healthy
D. he was wanted by goldseekers thanks to his strong muscles and long hair
( )63. Which of the following statements is true according to the passage?
A. Judge Miller owned a big house and a large piece of land in the Klondike.
B. Manuel bought and sold Buck because he needed money to support his life.
C. The fat man cruelly beat Buck with a club to teach him how to fight back.
D. Buck's introduction into the world of primitive law was obeying the fat man.
( )64. What can be the suitable title for the excerpt?
A. Fall into Trouble B. Fight against a Man
C. Escape from Trouble D. Believe in a Man
What do people in the outside world do when they want to learn something? They go to
somebody who knows about it, and ask him. They do not go to somebody who is supposed to know
about everything—except, when they are very young, to their parents: and they speedily become
dissatisfied with that variety of knowledge. They go to somebody who might reasonably be
expected to know about the particular thing they are interested in. When a man buys a motorcar,
he does not say to himself: “ Where can I find somebody who can teach me how to run a
motorcar？” He does not look in the telephone directory under T. He just gets an experienced
driver to teach him. He just pays attention and asks questions and tries to do the thing himself, until
But this case, of course, assumes an interest of the pupil in the subject, a willingness and even
a desire to learn about it, a feeling that the matter is of some importance to himself. And come to
think of it, these motives are generally present in the learning that goes on in the outside world. It is
only in school that the pupil is expected to be unwilling to learn.8
When you were a child, and passed the door of the village blacksmith(铁匠) shop, and looked
in, day after day, you admired his skill, and stood in awe of his strength; and if he had offered to let
you blow the bellows for him and shown you how to make a redhot penny, that would have been a
proud moment. It would also have been an educational one. But suppose there had been a
new__shop set up in the town, and when you looked in at the open door you saw a man at work
painting a picture; and suppose a bell rang just then, and the man stopped painting right in the
middle of a brushstroke, and started to read aloud “How They Brought the Good News from
Ghent to Aix”； and suppose when he was halfway through, the bell rang again, and he said, “We
will go on with that tomorrow，” and started to chisel the surface of a piece of marble; and then,
after a little, somewhat exhaustedly, started in to play “The Rock of Ages” on a flute, interrupting
the tune to order you to stand up straight and not whisper to the little boy beside you. There's no
doubt what you would think of him; you would know perfectly well that he was crazy; people don't
do things in that way anywhere in the world, except in school.
And even if he had assured you that what were taught were later in your life going to be
matters of the deepest importance and interest, and that you should start in now with the
determination of becoming proficient in them, it would not have helped much. Not very much.
It's nonsense that children do not want to learn. Everybody wants to learn. And everybody
wants to teach. And the process is going on all the time. All that is necessary is to put a person who
knows something—really knows it—within the curiosityrange of someone who doesn't know it:
the process begins at once. It is almost irresistible.
If there were no teachers—no hastily and superficially trained Vestals who were supposed to
know everything—but just ordinary human beings who knew passionately and thoroughly one
thing and who had the patience to show little boys and girls how to do that thing—we might get
along with our learning pretty well. Of course, we'd have to pay them more, because they could get
other jobs out in the larger world; and besides, you couldn't expect to get somebody who knows
how to do something, for the price you are accustomed to pay those who only know how to teach
( )65. What does the author mainly want to say with this article?
A. An education without teachers is unimaginable.
B. A teacher who knows everything is more welcome.
C. School teachers are far from satisfactory and necessary.
D. We have paid too much for teachers for school education.
( )66. What does the underlined word “somebody” in the first paragraph refer to?
A. A teacher. B. A parent.
C. A man in the outside world. D. A man like the blacksmith.
( )67. What happened in the “new shop” mentioned in Paragraph 3?
A. Useless subjects like painting and poetry, sculpture and music were taught.
B. The man at work became crazy with so many subjects to deal with.
C. One man teaching everything influenced the efficiency of learning.
D. Children listened carefully and often discussed about what is taught with others.
( )68. According to the author, which of the following can we infer?

B. Schools are the places killing students' interest and willingness to learn.
C. Learning liferelated skills like blacksmithing is more important than arts.9

a. exemplification(举例) b. exaggeration(夸张) c. personification(拟人)
d. irony(讽刺) e. analogy(类比)

“Hey! So, this Lin Daiyu in A Dream of Red Mansions—” The boy elbowed his deskmate,
“Why would she hold a funeral for the flowers, and cry while doing so? What was it that made her
“You'd wonder, wouldn't you？” the girl said. And she explained confidently: “What Lin
Daiyu did exhibits the qualities and characteristics of literati(文人学士) in ancient China. This was
called grieving over spring's passing and saddened at the arrival of autumn. That is to say, they
tended to express their sentimentality(伤感) in the description of things amidst seasonal changes.
This poem you just read, A Sad Song for the Flowers, is a typical work mourning the spring.”
“But spring and autumn are the best seasons. So beautiful! Why would they trigger(引发)
these feelings in poets？”
“Exactly they do trigger them! The turn of the seasons, at the end of spring or the beginning
of autumn often triggered the realization of the elapse of time and the shortness of life. Poets,
particularly the lonely, troubled and unfulfilled ones, would describe habitual scenes, such as fallen
flowers and running water in spring, or cold wind and cold drizzle in autumn, as symbols of the
unavoidable fading of all things vigorous and beautiful. They put into their poems not only the
imageries but also their epiphanies(领悟)．”
Seeing the boy was impressed by her eloquence, the girl beamed proudly.
He said, “Well put! I get it now. There are plenty of poems with similar subjects that I have
read. Maybe it is common in Chinese classical poetry. But, wait ， why is it so? Why were the
Chinese poets affected with such a sentiment? Is it limited to Chinese poets？”
“Uh... I wouldn't say that it is entirely absent from foreign literature, but it is definitely more
noticeable in Chinese literature...” flummoxed by the question, the girl was speechless now.
As the two were engaged in their discussion, their Chinese teacher came in. They turned to
him for help immediately.
The teacher said, “ Behind the strong emotions about spring and autumn is the general
sensitivity of the Chinese people to the changes of Nature. I'm sure you both have learned in history
class that ancient China was an advanced agricultural civilization, which largely depended on
Nature to grow crops and reap the harvest. This in the long run gave the Chinese people a deep
sense of awe in the face of Nature, and great sensitivity to the changes of the weather, which
triggered their emotions at the turn of seasons.”
“In the case of Daiyu and the ‘flower funeral’， it's easy to understand in the context of the
traditional Chinese concept of the Unity of ‘Man and Nature’， which regards Man as an 10
essential part of Nature. What Daiyu was doing was relating herself to the flowers, and
sympathizing with them, which was philosophically and cognitively pre programmed in the
Chinese cultural DNA.”

(In a philosophy class)
P: We all have this one life to live. A fleeting shadow amongst all that exists in this vast
universe. We have the ability to accomplish anything, truly anything, if we use our time wisely.
P：(putting some golf balls into the jar) Is this jar full?
P: (after adding some pebbles into the jar) Is it full now?
P: (after inserting some sand into the jar) How about now, is the jar full now?
P: Good... (pouring some beer into the jar)
S: ...(laughing, smiling, thinking，...)
P: Now I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the
important things, your family, your friends，your health and your passions. The pebbles are the
other important things, your car, your job, your home. The sand is everything else, the small stuff.
P: Now if you put the sand in the jar first you won't have room for the pebbles or the golf balls. 11
The same is true in life. If you spend all your energy and your time on the small stuff, you won't
have time for all the really important things that matter to you.
P: Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Take care of the golf balls first.
The really important things. Set your priorities. Because everything else is just sand.
S: Professor, what does the beer represent?
P: I'm glad you asked. It goes to show that no matter how full your life may seem to be, there
is always room for a couple of beers with a friend.

One possible version：
A philosophy professor shared with his students the significance of a wise use of time. With a
unique demonstration, he inspires them to prioritize the most important things over small staff.
Personally, I do believe the professor reveals the true nature of life. We only have 24 hours a
day, so it's unrealistic to include everything precious in our life. A wise sequence is therefore
crucial to our wellbeing. Just as is shown in the demonstration, when life is stuffed with small
things, big and meaningful ones will remain unfulfilled.
This principle can actually be followed in our study. For example, to efficiently acquire some
knowledge, a global image of it should come first before we dive into small details. Our study time
should also be wisely allocated, addressing those important or difficult subjects rather than small
ones first. Never forget, being penny wise but pound foolish is never a good strategy in study.
